We stay at Anam Cara twice a year as we visit Philadelphia for medical reasons. Teresa is a great host and makes sure that we are comfortable and know how everything works. We'd left the Australian summer for the snow of Philadelphia and the place was a cozy little haven that we thought was a perfect home away from home.... More

I just ended my stay of 4 weeks at Anam Cara. Excellent place to stay! Teresa is a very honest, friendly and service oriented hostess. She went out of her way to make us fell comfortable. The apartment was great for our needs and exactly as pictured. A cozy place to stay with a homy atmosphere. Location is super: a... More

Great location in a safe neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants; it is nearby the train (a five minute walk) which will take you directly into Center City. My room was equipped with a queen bed, kitchen, fridge, microwave, an assortment of kitchen wares, table for four, cable TV, writing desk and free wi-fi. There is also a washer... More

We have been going every 6 months for the last year, and it´s one less thing to worry about our trip. It´s like going back home, very clean, very safe, very close to Germantown and the center of Chestnut hill is walking distance.

Anam Cara Accommodations is so wonderful, and feels like a home away from home. Everything you need to have a wonderful stay. Owner is so loving and will do almost everything for you to make you feel at home. It would not be a perfect vacation without Anam Cara.

I stayed at Anam Cara for three months while in Philadelphia on business. Let me tell, just finding a furnished apartment that would allow my large dog was quite a task! But I couldn't believe my luck to find one that was in such a fantastic neighborhood and with all the other amenities that I wanted. First of all, if... More

We have stayed at Anam Cara several times, both on the first and second floors. It is in a great, quiet neighborhood convenient to all. Theresa is a lovely host and very helpful. The decor is homey and cozy with plenty of closets and storage, fully equipped kitchen, dining area, desk and comfortable bedding. There is a laundry room, too.... More

My wife and I stayed in apartment #4 (studio) from November of 2012 through February of 2013. Our experience was excellent. Street parking is readily available and never in short supply. We had two cars and were always able to park within 100 ft of the entrance. The neighborhood is quiet, safe, and friendly and only a few minutes walk... More

When I was transitioning between jobs I had an awkward 1 month that I needed a place to stay, and this turned out to be perfect! It came furnished with all basic needs and in a safe and convenient location. It was a lifesaver for me because it's nearly impossible to find decent short term leases in the area...definitely preferable... More

Stayed for a month at Anam Cara when we were otherwise homeless. Excellent experience! It was the hottest summer on record in Philadelphia, but the trusty window air-conditioner kept us cool day and night. The place is comfortable, convenient, and well-kept. A nice homey feeling to it. Excellent value. Wifi is a BIG plus. Teresa the owner is attentive and... More
